2 new antioxidant options to try
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: You should be using an antioxidant product every morning. An integral part of the anti-aging puzzle, you need ingredients that neutralize the free radicals that are attacking your skin—right now. Yep, there are unstable electrons wreaking havoc on your cells’ DNA as you read this, and they will inevitably cause fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and potentially skin cancer if you don’t stop them. Now that you’re sufficiently scared of molecules that you can’t see, here are two new products from Avéne that will take them off your worry list.
Since serums are among the most concentrated skincare products, I prefer this formulation for my antioxidant protection—and Avéne’s new A-OXitive Antioxidant Defense Serum contains vitamins C and E to shield your skin from free radicals. As an added bonus, this serum also hydrates, blurs imperfections, plumps up fine lines, and maintains its effectiveness after it’s opened thanks to airless pump packaging. As with all Avéne products, this serum is ideal for skin types (and especially sensitive)—and at $44 you get effective environmental protection at a great price.
If you prefer to skip the serum straight and go straight to the moisturizer, you can get your hydration and antioxidant protection in one bottle with the A-OXitive Antioxidant Water Cream. This super-lightweight yet super-hydrating formula also features vitamins C and E plus mother of pearl for an instant radiance boost. It also delivers a steady stream of moisture for 24 hours, so it helps keep your skin juicy and comfortable from day until night (and beyond).
With fall officially upon us, now’s the time to update your product regimen—and prepare your skin for colder weather ahead. And with these two new options, you can rest easy that you’re protected against damaging free radicals and focus your energy elsewhere!
